Okay, here's how it works - you can probably follow these steps and correlate them with past sub-cultures.
1: Society, out of tempetuosness, changes into something new, this could be anything from the rise of the 'punk' movement to the rise of the
2: The Media (T.V, whatever) EMULATES the sub-culture, thereby causing those in society whom are interested in such materialistic pursuits as
'getting really piss#d', or hanging around in large groups, to see for themselves what is on offer where these 'sub-cultures' are concerned.
3: Those members of society who see the Media emulating the Society (sub-culture they are interested in) begin to Emulate what they see as society
through the eyes of the media.
4: The Media emulates Society (sub-culture) slightly differently*, which could be compared to the rise of pop-punk, or Hip Hop, both of which are
variations on an original theme.
*By providing free advertisements (or even paying the) [profanity] bands and groups that have a theme of 'innovation', or as i like to call
it - deluded individualism, the 'I Want, Therefore it is mine' Mentality.
5: Those who have been emulating the sub-culture through the eyes of the media now follow the new 'proto-culture', which eventually swallows the
original sub-culture into it's vast, inky black pit of moderate entertainment, thereby killing the sub-culture.
Importantly, killing sub-cultures isn't everything they can do, they can also take command of sub-cultures if they're precise about it.
At this point, i'll utter the words Manufactured sub-culture and move on.
